Earlier this week we saw a piece posted on io9 where Dave Filoni spoke about the decision to have Maul survive the events of the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 finale in order to later on come face to face with Obi-Wan Kenobi in “Twin Suns”. In this latest interview with io9, Filoni expands further on the Maul/Obi-Wan duel. He also touches on the subject of the goosebump-inducing “cameo” that ends the episode and offered up the following comments on where Ezra will be headed in Season 4:

As fun as it is to talk about legacy characters like Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Darth Maul, this is Star Wars Rebels after all. It’s not the story of those characters, it’s the story of young Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger. Bridger is a key component in the episode, but how these events will change him remains to be seen.

“Season four will answer that,” Filoni promised. “Going into season four now Ezra has a much greater sense of who he is…. season three, in a lot of ways, has been about a quest for power, for true allies and true family. So you see most of the characters deal with that in season three.”
